Note: in support of uncensored journalism and because YouTube has already given me one out of three strikes towards banning me, I started Bitchute and Brighteon channels. However, they are both relentlessly attacked by the deep state, so they have to install a number of anti-hack filters, which really slows down uploads and processing there. For their truth telling they also get de-platformed without notice. Just in case, please subscribe to both NOW and start watching there, to plan for my eventual YouTube shutdown, which could happen any day, just like hundreds of thousands of others. Thank you.

Podcast transcript:

Hello, everybody. This is Jeff J. Brown, China Rising Radio Sinoland cum China Tech News Flash!

I’m going to do a little bit of a combo here today. You know, I, haven’t done a China Tech News Flash! this month because I’ve just been watching what’s going on in the headlines. And I’m like, is this amazing? Just incredible. By the way, this is completely extemporaneous. I have no notes. I have no nothing.

First, the most amazing thing, and as you can see behind me on the green screen is the film footage of the Arecibo Radio Telescope down in Puerto Rico, imploding, collapsing. I mean, I was reading articles about it and they knew for two years, the people at the National Science Foundation in the United States have been saying the cables are going, the structure needs to be repaired and it could have been easily done. And yet here we have behind me film footage of drones and cameras watching one of the United States’ greatest basic research platforms since World War Two. And they knew it was coming down. They knew it was going to collapse. They knew it was just a matter of time.

And there was even a drone catching the cables snapping. So for two years, the United States government did nothing. They did not fund anything, there was no alarm, no one cared. And so last week or maybe 10 days ago, it collapsed. And, you know, then you juxtapose that with, last year, or maybe even early twenty-twenty, China opened its ground-based radio telescope dish in Yunnan, and so now China has the world’s preeminent radio dish telescope, while now, the United States has nothing. Well, they do have the VLA in Arizona.

I do want to say that, but is it being funded? Are they even using it?

I mean, I have no idea. But now, China has all these, they’re inviting scientists from all over the world to come to their, I think they call it the Very Large Telescope, the VLT, the Chinese one. The one in Arizona is the Very Large Array, VLA. And I love both of them because they were in the movie Contact with Jodie Foster and Matthew McConaughey and the great book by Carl Sagan. And it was just a great movie. And Arecibo was there. You know, it was in the movie and now it’s gone.

So anyway, you’re watching that. You’re watching the United States government and people knowing that they’re about to lose one of the greatest technological treasures in their arsenal and they’re going to just let it go.

They’re just going to let it die. So now China has the Very Large Telescope.

Correction: China’s is in Guizhou, next to Yunnan and called FAST – Chinese Aperture Spherical Radio Telescope, starting operation in January 2020.

Then you all may have seen, Russia came out and said that the International Space Station (ISS) is in such awful shape that it may not even last until twenty-twenty-five, when it’s supposed to be decommissioned in twenty-twenty-five. They said they don’t even know if they can, you know, keep it running. And of course, as I reported on China Tech News Flash!, the Americans never let the Chinese onto the International Space Station, for supposedly military secrets and all that, you know, testing bean sprouts in space and mushrooms in space. And so, it never really was truly international. It was always Western. And they let people in as they wanted – enemy states not allowed.

And then right after that, China lands their lunar module on the Moon.

And they were actually nice enough to put a little robot camera that went out away from the module and taking pictures, movie pictures of this explorer taking samples, two kilograms of Moon rocks and dirt samples, packed them up. And then you could sit there and watch the little rocket from the top with the two kilograms go shoot off into space. It perfectly connected with the satellite, the reentry vehicle, it’s coming back and it’s going to land somewhere, probably out in Xinjiang.

And so now China has Moon rock samples.

Now you can argue all you want. We can have a wonderful debate. But if you read Dave McGowan’s book, Wagging the Moondoggie (Wagging the Moondoggie: Part I | The Center for an Informed America), you know, I don’t think we ever went to the Moon back in the 1960s, but that’s another story. So, I mean, as far as I’m concerned, China will now have the first Moon rocks.

And so, you know, and they’ve already done their Mars thing and now NASA is trying to compete with them, but it’s tough. I mean, it is, you know, it’s China. China Tech is relentless. And then just this week. This is Sunday, so it was just last week: China announced that they had – I already reported about this on China Tech News Flash! – a quantum computer. But now, China has gotten their quantum computer to actually use real atoms to do computational problems.

And what’s amazing, and I didn’t get into what the difference was with Google, but Google has their quantum computer. But apparently now it is Number Two, now Google is behind China in terms of quantum computers.

Not only that, but, Google’s quantum computer, which is now not as good, also has to be kept, the entire system has to be kept at near absolute zero  – minus two hundred and seventy degrees Celsius – whatever that is in Fahrenheit, minus four hundred and something. The new Chinese quantum computer, the entire system only has to be kept at minus 20 degrees, which is your deep freezer. So, you’ve got your freezer and you put your quantum computer in your freezer. The only part that they have to store at near absolute zero is the actual little processor in the middle. Unbelievable.

And then, you know, Huawei is going into cars. I mean, they’re unstoppable.

In fact, I will I’ll post a graph here, just to show you where Huawei is in sales. The West can’t deal with 5G without Huawei. I mean, they are going to have to use Huawei. I think there’s a lot facts, I’ve been speculating that all these delays, like France is saying, “Well, in two-thousand-twenty-eight and two-thousand-twenty-five, you know, we’ll have to remove all of our equipment. Well, who’s looking?

By the way, just to let you know where we are here in France, you know, modern France. This week, in 2000, December of twenty-twenty, we finally got cable. Up until now we were using, we were being forced to use an ADSL copper telephone line for our Internet.

This is supposedly in technologically advanced West.

And in Bayeux, the prefectural capital, like the county seat, is only seven kilometers from us. That’s a big town. I mean, it’s the county seat and at least half, if not three fourths of the town doesn’t even have fiber or cable.

So, you know, you just you’re sitting there (thinking about) 5G. Well, China, just two or three weeks ago launched a 6G satellite! So, China is already moving into 6G, which is terahertz instead of megahertz, with terahertz being a trillion hertz instead of a million.

What’s the West doing?

Well, NATO is occupying Afghanistan so that they can process all the heroin and ship it back to Europe and ship it back to the United States and push it into all the poor minority neighborhoods. They’re in Iraq, stealing Iraq’s oil, they’re in Syria, stealing Syria’s oil. And you can’t do it… You can’t do everything. And so, the United States alone, not even to mention Europe, is borrowing a trillion dollars a year to maintain their global empire, and you can’t do it all.

I would say that watching this irreversible thing and then just seeing what China Tech is doing day after day, I mean, I’ve got like 50 pages of hyperlinks of stuff that China’s, and I can’t keep up. I cannot keep up with all that they’re doing.

And so, this is this is a cautionary note. I mean, literally Arecibo is the sort of the harbinger of the collapse of American empire. And it’s a metaphor. It’s a metaphor.

You know, they’re too busy trying to overthrow China and Hong Kong. They’re too busy trying to destroying Ukraine. They’re too busy trying to cause mischief in Myanmar. They’re too busy trying to cause problems in Thailand. They’re too busy, you know, trying to overthrow Iran.

They’re too busy trying to overthrow Venezuela, stealing – stealing their overseas assets. What can I say?

So, as we close out this year and I’m going to try a new whole new system for twenty-twenty- one and see if that works. And then, you know, you just you just see the horrible… you know, what’s going on in the United States with… You can say Biden won, but Biden didn’t win. They just massively stole that election. Every election in the United States has been jury rigged to a certain extent, even going back to George Washington. I mean, it’s built into the Constitution, but this one was just like massively flagrant. It’s just banana republic. It’s just sad to watch.

And so this is where I’m kind of thinking about things.

And then I just don’t know what to say, as I watch all this going around. You know, we’ve got the Covid-Great Reset here in Europe. My friend T.P. Wilkinson in Portugal said, they’re already saying in the press in Portugal that 60 percent of the restaurants will go bankrupt in Portugal.

Of course, those are all family owned, individually owned, small, small, small operators. And now my wife told me in the French press, they’re also saying that 60 percent of the restaurants will be forced into bankruptcy because of the fascist police state confinement lockdown.

And so it’s… What a coincidence, 60 percent in Portugal and 60 percent in France!

So, you know, it’s just… I don’t know what to say if you’re living in China and elsewhere, if you’re in some socialist, communist, anti-imperial country, I think you’re probably going to be a lot better off in the next few years, because it’s just looking very, very ugly here in Europe, with the police state locked down and the destruction of the economy and the Great Reset that’s going to be coming up for us.

And then you look at what’s going on in the United States and the three-ring political circus and whether it’s Biden or Trump, you know, the country is just going to be roiling, roiling with turmoil and instability.

Yet, China just keeps right on pumping and humping and producing and moving forward.

All right. Have a wonderful day. Bye-bye.
